Pillar of Sunnidale community remembered Monday
Betty SPICHER honoured earlier this year with Sunnidale Senior of the Year award
By Michael GENNINGS, Page 8
Betty SPICHER, Sunnidale Winterama's 2007 Female Senior of the Year, died on Friday at Stayner Nursing Home.
She was 80.
The family said SPICHER's cause of death was related to heart trouble.
SPICHER (née PADDISON) was a native of Sunnidale Township and throughout her life was heavily involved in the community.
She was awarded the Senior of the Year honour during a special ceremony in February at the New Lowell branch of the Royal Canadian legion.
"I sure wasn't expecting this?" SPICHER told The Stayner Sun in an interview at the time. "It was very nice. Thank goodness they didn't ask me to make a speech because I wouldn't have been able to give one."
In receiving the award, SPICHER was recognized for her 55 years with the Women's Institute and for her volunteer efforts at the Sunnidale Corners Community Centre, where she helped organize such things as dances and lunches.
As well, for the last 17 years, until just recently, SPICHER was the caretaker and treasurer of the hall.
In an interview earlier this year, SPICHER said she enjoyed helping out. She added that volunteers help make small communities such special places.
A funeral service for SPICHER was held at Centennial United Church in Stayner on Monday afternoon, with burial at Stayner Union Cemetery.
SPICHER's daughter Elaine COLLINGS told The Stayner Sun that her mother was "a hard-working person who didn't like to be idle."
She added her mother was devoted to family and Friends.
Her interests included quilting, knitting and gardening. COLLINGS said her mom did pickling every year, giving much of it away to family and Friends.
COLLINGS said she would remember her mother as "the go-to person," for advice about such things as recipes and family matters like birthday dates and names.
The family said that donations in memory of SPICHER could be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation, General and Marine Hospital or the charity of choice.
SPICHER, predeceased by her husband Edward, is survived by daughter Gail and her husband Randy JOHNS of Blackstock, Elaine and her husband Allen COLLINGS of Stayner, Murray and his wife Carolin of Collingwood and Barry and his wife Louise of Sunnidale Corners.

Only one gun used in fatal Toronto shooting
By Jonathan JENKINS, Sun Media, Mon., June 11, 2007
Toronto -- Just one gun was used to pump bullets into the packed Honda carrying Jose Hierro SAEZ and several Friends, killing the teen and wounding three other men, police said yesterday, dismissing the suggestion the victims fired back.
"We have no evidence to support anyone in the Honda firing back," Toronto police homicide Det.-Sgt. Gary GRINTON said.
"If it's a gunfight, it's an awfully one-sided one."
Hierro SAEZ, 19, was hit in the head and pronounced dead at the scene Saturday afternoon.
"It's not a good time right now," said a man outside the victim's townhouse, just metres from where he died.
GRINTON said SAEZ was working as a shipper-receiver and living with his mother and sister.
Like the three other men injured with him, he was known to police, but only in "a very minor way," GRINTON said, adding police have no firm reason why their car was targeted.
"There's a lot of different possibilities that we're getting, but none that we've confirmed and none that are terribly plausible, to be honest," GRINTON said.
"There's a lot of stuff we're looking at, but nothing I could say."
McFrinn PADDY, 19, Moustaffa OMAR, 20, and Matthew DALE, 18, were all injured in the barrage, fired from inside a silver Mercedes-Benz sport utility vehicle about 3 p.m.
All three are speaking with police about the shooting.
One of the men was released from hospital Saturday, a second was expected to be released yesterday and the third was to be treated for about a week, the detective said.
"They're very lucky, especially the one chap who got it in the stomach," GRINTON said.
The shooting continued for about 50 metres, he said.
